Whenever I wear these heels, I feel seven feet tall. I am infatuated with pairing sky-high platforms and ├╝ber skinny jeans. Since the jumper reminded me of the Nineties, in every good way possible, I just had to pair it with acid wash skinnies. The fact that these pumps remind me of Minnie Mouse, doesn't hurt either. Who wouldn't want to be reminded of the most magical place on Earth with every glance at their feet?

The weekend before last was the exact opposite, weather wise. The sun was shining, the birds chirping and the rain nonexistent. We went to the park for a picnic. I brought along Life & Style magazine, Subway, potato salad and homemade pasta salad. I'm getting hungry just remembering it all over again. I wore my chambray romper that I can't help but imagine Kate Bosworth owning a similar style. The studded ankle boots and chain bag were thrown in to add just enough edge to the sweet, light wash denim. Even though Spring and Summer are basically here it's still kind of chilly. Enough so, I needed the cardigan and beanie. As much as I miss Miami, summers there weren't always picture perfect. Most of the summer is filled with rain and way more humidity than any girl can really hope to handle. I don't miss wearing tank tops and shorts or flip flops April through August. It's nice being able to layer and adapt to four different seasons every year. I do miss the beaches though...

I am not from California and have only been there once. However, this secondary line from Le Petit Petit, has joined forces with Pacific Sunwear to bring you a collection that is a combination of both the Malibu Coast and the streets of Paris. I grew up in Miami knowing only the beach as my summer vacation. Whether my family was planning a week's stay in Sanibel Island or a week long Cruise excursion, the water, sun and sand were always home to me. This tank top resurfaced those memories all over again for me. You can check out more from Malibu Native by clicking here.

What is Summer vacation to you?

Bright Eyes and Fashion Shows

Fashion photography, Makeup

With Spring already showing her face and having studied the designs for Spring/Summer 2011 meticulously, I have an immense thirst for floor-grazing, gauzy skirts. (Lanvin, Pucci) Also high on my list: no-fuss makeup paired with bright pink lipstick. (Fendi) Pile on short shorts (Isabel Marant) and you have yourself a deadly combination. Inspired by Southern California, Marant came back with cropped knits and slouchy, off the shoulder tops to match her sexy shorts. Heavenly silhouettes that spoke in semi-transparent fabrics (Dolce & Gabbana) and the delicious brights (Gucci) had me clamoring... and let's not forget the floral prints at D&G. Spring has a lot to offer. Fruit prints played nice with minimalism at Stella McCartney. Derek Lam and Theyskens' Theory also toyed with minimalism and effortless dressing.

What are you craving to sink your teeth into this Spring?

Color Blocking

Report sandals, Color Blocking Fashion Trend
Report sandals

It may be cloudy outside with a forecast for rain... but I won't let that dampen my mood. No, I found these sandals in the back of my closet and they instantly brightened my mood. If it does decide to pour, I'll simply hole myself inside with a bowl of Won-Ton soup, Netflix stocked with rain-friendly films, and peruse Paris Vogue and Elle.

What are your plans today?

How has your week been so far? I hope it's been great. I finally sat down and watched Despicable Me last night. Can I just say it's my new (maybe forever) favorite movie? Pharrell Williams set the tone through the soundtrack and Steve Carell warmed my heart. I am just like the littlest girl, Agnes. Collecting anything with a Unicorn on it!

As for my outfit today, I broke one of my own rules: denim on denim. I never do it. Yet seeing the varying washes and styles it seemed approachable. I love these train conductor pants. The cut is just right for my long legs and adds a sixties touch, which I of course adore.

I wanted to juxtapose two contrasting fashion ideas with my look today. A little bit citified, Rock 'N Roll, thus my favorite boots and the semi beat up leather jacket. By adding in the soft cardigan and tote, I took things down a notch and made it a bit more folksy and unfussy. Do you like it? I love the size of this bag, it truly fits my entire life ...and more. I am also fond of the logo, very Chanel, no?

By the way, how do you like my newish header? I tweaked it a bit this morning. ;)

The moment I pulled this dress on, I was immediately transported to a varied set of memories from my life. When I first saw Pocahontas in theaters as a kid. High school, attending outdoor concerts. My past obsession with the movie The Indian in the Cupboard and daydreaming on the beach... Summer feels like it's quickly approaching!

In other news: I spent my weekend upgrading from PC to Mac. Any info for newbies, set in their old PC ways? Also, I can't help myself from reaching for my red nail lacquer bottles. I really want to change things up now that temperatures are starting to rise. Recommend away all the nail polish colors you're wearing and craving today? :)

After inviting my Mom over for lunch on Friday, I came home to a care package by the door. I persuaded her into taking my photo wearing some of the items. I started with the T-Shirt. I don't know about you, but some of my favorite television programs aired from 1991 - 2001. Spanning from the scary story wielding Are You Afraid of the Dark? to the thought-provoking My So Called Life, I was entertained. Does anyone remember Boston Public? Another excellent series. Or So Weird? I loved the mystery. I don't think TV is as intriguing now as it used to be then....

What TV Shows do you miss??

The Olsen Cool Factor + Vogue

Mary Kate Olsen, Fashion, Vogue
Ashley Olsen, Fashion, Vogue

Even when casual, in jeans and layered basics, the Olsens have honed in on a special, cool sense of style. Always chic, always on trend and always comfortable; Mary-Kate alongside her twin sister, Ashley, have been setting the trends since their teens. Now, with the success of their luxurious American line, The Row, they are finally getting the recognition they truly deserve among the Fashion elite. This month's April issue of Vogue talks about how what they may lack in height, they hugely amass with their creativity and design. These twins are the ones to watch.

I have two shelves full of floor-length skirts. Mostly vintage or inherited from my Mom's personal stash. I don't wear them more only because I have trouble figuring out what shoes to wear them with. Then it struck me, why not ballet flats? Being 5'7" I often have trouble with the length of jeans and skirts and finding the appropriate shoes for them. My next challenge? Bell bottom jeans...
What is your wardrobe challenge?
